Gunmen open fire on Laventille man driving along EMR

A 32-year-old man was shot and wounded while driving along the Eastern Main Road, Laventille on Wednesday afternoon.

The victim, of Spring Village, Trou Macaque, was driving his white Nissan B14, around 5.20 pm yesterday, when gunmen opened fire on him in the vicinity of Angostura.

The man then swerved onto the Lady Yong Road in a bid to escape the gunmen.

However, he lost control of his car, which then veered off the road. He was shot several times about the body.

The gunmen sped off.

Eyewitness flagged down a police vehicle and they escorted the man to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope.
